Oh, it gets better. 

Friday, he's going to become the first sitting President to speak at an event hosted by the Family Research Center. The FRC are against equal rights for LGBT, same-sex marriage and civil unions, LGBT adoptions, embryonic stem-cell research, porn, and divorce.

The Southern Poverty Law Center classifies the FRC as an anti-gay hate group.

So basically he's about to lose not only all the votes from Puerto Rico if he manages to run for re-election, but he's also going to lose the votes of LGBT and their supporters.

Trump to Scrap Critical Health Care Subsidies, Hitting Obamacare Again

This was just announced in the NYT. I'm not really sure how the US health system works but this doesn't sound that good for low-income Americans. Aren't these the ones that voted for him?

I thought Puerto Rico didnít get to vote in the general election because they were just a territory.

They can vote in the primaries and that's it.

Yes, Neil. But Trump wonít rest until he reverses everything that terrible black did while in office and his supporters will cheer him on every step of the way. Even to their own detriment.

He just announced that he spoke with the president of the Virgin Islands earlier. 

Er...

The intelligence level of this turnip is truly astounding.

His vocabulary is lame. Same words. Can spout many adjectives, but doesn't really explore a point or elaborate.

His review of STAR WARS would be something like this:

"It was great, super in fact. Very good."

Sums him up really well. He only THINKS he is smart.

What a dumbass.

Just a day after Energy Secretary Rick Perry referred to Puerto Rico as its own country.

*sigh*

-C!

I wonder if 45 understands the constituent nations of the UK. Wonder if he could point out Scotland or Wales on a map (one example).

How about if a foreign nation (Canada, UK, Russia?) offers to absorb or pay Puerto Rico's debt, fly in with aid to have PR secede from the US? Easy way to buy into a new island resort for your citizens! Seriously though, my favorite today is when you said he met with the President of the Virgin Islands. Isn't that him?

Most Americans don't understand exactly what 'constituent nations of the UK' means. I once had a friend in 'the UK'(England) tell me she would be visiting 'another country' on a weekend. It was Scotland. She had to explain the 'constituent countries' definition to me.
The average 'dumb American' thinks everything over there is 'England', while the average 'smarter American' knows to call it 'the United Kingdom' as a whole, and the names of each individual part of it...but American usage typically does not include the term 'constituent countries'. We'd say 'regions', most likely.

I have no problem with an American not knowing that, I only have a problem with a creep, who is forever telling people how clever he is, not living up to it.

Why do those who say they are smart usually turn out not to be?
